March, 5, 2020 - This month (March 2020) we have the honor to host at our department Professor Marie D. Price from George Washington University, a renowned American geographer and researcher in the fields of international migration, urban geography, international relations and Latin America. Colleagues and students will be able to meet her and learn from her wide-ranging knowledge and research skills at public talks (see below) or during individual consultation.
Marie Price is President of the American Geographical Society and Professor of Geography and International Affairs at the George Washington University. She is also a non-resident fellow of the Migration Policy Institute. A Latin American and migration specialist, her studies have explored human migration, especially with a focus on the transformation of cities, but also natural resource use, environmental conservation, and regional development. She has conducted research in Belize, Mexico, Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia, as well as e.g. in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Students of all study programs interested in personal consultation are welcome to contact Marie Price directly at email@example.com. During the time of her stay she will use the office no. 210 on the 2nd floor of the Albertov 6 building.
